What We Do

Trailrippers Racing

Trailrippers Race Team will remain our flagship and aims to become an inclusive development team for aspiring Downhill Mountain Bike racers. It will provide visibility to Trailrippers Project CIC on the international stage and show that mountain biking is for people of all backgrounds.

The Race Team aims to become a platform for development not only for downhill racers but will give opportunities into many other related professions within the mountain bike industry such as bike mechanics, photographers/videographers, social media, coaching/guiding and so on.

By fostering growth not only in competitive prowess but also in diverse skill sets, the Race Team aspires to serve as a springboard for individuals encountering barriers to entry in the sport, nurturing their development across various roles within the field.

Dyfi Groms Fund

Mountain Biking is not a cheap sport. Having the appropriate equipment is often a first barrier to enjoy it in a safe way as bikes and protection all come at a considerable cost. Once the cost of coaching, access to bike parks and travel is added, MTB easily becomes inaccessible to those on lower incomes.

Through the Dyfi Groms Fund, Trailrippers Project CIC provides support for young people in the Dyfi Valley area to access the fantastic network of trails around them. We will work closely with Rikki Barrett MTB who runs coaching programmes in the Dyfi Forest, and sponsor spaces on his sessions for those who experience financial limitations.

As the project and the funding grows, Trailrippers Project CIC hopes to widen their scope to support youngsters in a variety of ways.

Other Grassroots Projects

Nathan and Ruben are very lucky to grow up in the beautiful Dyfi Valley but are aware that many young people don’t have access to the outdoors as easily as them. Trailrippers Project CIC will work closely with local charity The Anne Matthews Trust, to bring the joy of mountain biking to people who would otherwise not get this opportunity. With the help of Wheelism, the young people who attend residentials at the Braich Goch Bunkhouse in Corris will be given the chance to experience mountain biking during their stay.
